France, late 1920s. Cheerful and free-spirited, Thérèse (Audrey Tautou) marries her neighbor Bernard Desqueyroux (Gilles Lellouche), turning the land of two families into one large estate. Bernard tolerates the strong will of his intelligent wife, but he cannot prevent Thérèse from feeling trapped and bored. The dull life in the countryside and her husband's mediocrity fuel dreams of Paris. Dreaming about more inspiration, culture and challenge. However, a desperate attempt to change her fate ends up wrong. She not only loses face to both families, but also her last hope for freedom. Thérèse D. portrays the heartbreaking agony of a cast-iron character in a moving and compelling image.
